  • Alumni College Panel Returns

    We were grateful for the generosity of Tandem alumni willing to share their time and wisdom with our current juniors and seniors on January 6. The College Panel is an annual event of almost 20 years that brings current alumni college students in to share wisdom and answer questions about their college experience with Upper Schoolers. Sometimes they share what it's like to go to college far from home. Some talk about college-level sports. Some chose small schools and some are attending large universities. From what it's like to live in a dorm to how they made the leap from high school classes to college lectures, they have stories to tell about life after Tandem and plenty of great advice to give. Thanks to our wonderful alumni panel members: Sophie F (TFS '21, Vassar), Charlie K (TFS '19, U of Colorado Boulder), Anna K (TFS '21, Bryn Mawr), Ben L (TFS '19, UVA) and Jeremy O (TFS '19, UVA) for sharing their insight and wisdom. We love having them return to campus to tell their stories.
